For Consumers



Our Mission:

To represent your voice at the table, by providing advice and guidance to Johnston County Mental Health Center and Alliance Behavioral Healthcare MCO (through the Office of Consumer Affairs), on the service array and on improving services in Johnston County.

Who we are:

We are the Consumer and Family Advisory Committee (CFAC) to the Johnston County Mental Health Center.

A community based group of consumers and family members of consumers.  Consumers are people who use Mental Health, Intellectual Developmental Disabilities & Substance Abuse Services (MH/DD/SAS).

CFAC was created as a part of the N.C. Division of MH/DD/SAS Services Reform launched in 2001 to provide active participation by Consumers and family members of consumers which was signed in to law in 2007, (Session Law 206-142, House Bill 2077).

What we do:

  • Make recommendations on how consumers can know what services are available and how to access them.
  • Provide advice and consultation regarding development of additional services by exploring new ideas and practices proven to work best.
  • Advise and comment on the reform at the state and local levels.
  • Help identify people who are not receiving services.
  • Participate in the quality improvement process to make sure necessary changes are made.
  • Encourage consumer and family participation.


Come Join Us:

CFAC is recruiting members who are looking to make a difference in their community.

The only criteria we require is that you are either a consumer or a family member of a consumer within either client group represented in MH/DD/SAS and are willing to help with any action items.

The Consumer & Family Advisory Committee (CFAC) meetings are open to the public.
